Default Should Steelers retain Ike Taylor and give him a long-term contract?

Should Steelers retain Ike Taylor and give him a long-term contract or give up on him for #4 overall draft pick?

I think so, he's the best corner we've got so we need to hurry up and sign him.

Man, I wish I had a link to the info either Sporting News or ESPN Magazine had on just how effective Ike was last year. When you see the numbers, you realize that it's not just potential, but that's he's already one of the premier CB's in the league, and he's only been playing the position for a few years.

I'm telling you guys, he is absolutely capable of being as good as Rod Woodson, and there is just no way the Steelers are stupid enough to give up the bird in hand for the two in the bush.

Suit, Woodson??? I think he may be a good one, but Woodson was on the all time team.

The Steelers need to decide soon, they can lock him up now for a long time, if they wait, they will need to pay alot more, and possibly lose him

That is where the overrated stuff comes in when people start making those comparisons ( Woodson) I belive the numbers you are looking for showed his playoff numbers, not WHOLE season numbers.

Ike didnt have 95 tackles this year because he ran from one end of the field to another just to make a tackle.. it was cause teams threw at him and completed passes and he made the tackle afterwards. He also had help over the top after the Steelers watched him get ripped by Harrison one on one in the reg season. Again i like Ike, but the Woodson comparisons are too muchjust yet i think.
